Bek Beatrice6The play is about Beatrice – a naïve girl, who thinks that she can save and change the present materialistic and cynical world. She is like a spirit sent from the above. Spirits, such as Beatrice, do not exist anymore. Therefore this play is extremely relevant because we need this Beatrice to exist. The main characters’ lives are set according to Someone’s plan. They are marked with a barcode like goods because that Someone needs to possess information about the controlled person.

That Someone is not a real security agent. It isthe satanic monster in each of us in our own subconsciousness. These monstersare like viruses, that we are infected with. Yet Beatrice is capable to resist this infection of her inner evil. Perhaps her sacrifice may also free other souls?

Choreography: KAMILĖ NARKUTĖ

Relation Chips. Kinetic Theatre

2016 04 21 Relation chips

April 21 & 28, 2016 at 19:00 h in Vilnius University Theater Hall (Universiteto st. 3).

Movement performance/experiment, reflection of links between people, their impact on each other and imaginary realities, interpretations of thoughts. It’s a neverending journey from a single cell, a basic unit to the whole and vice versa. People, their influences, reactions, meterialised fears and real wonders.
One mind has spread out into dozens of different directions and there no longer is a relation between them. If we all are parts of one consciousness, then that consciousness is now suffering from a painful disorder - dissociation.

The heart of the program is traditional military-historical songs, featuring the drama of the young man who flees his family life for war.

There will be solo and male songs, sounds of violins, kanklės, hurdy-gurdy and other folk instruments. We promise a sacred and cozy evening in the Church of St Johns, which will appeal to everyone who long for a feeling of pure sound, calm presence, sincere feeling of human existence.

"Ratilio", soon to be a 50-year-old ensemble, favors traditional Lithuanian folklore, has accumulated a rich repertoire of all five Lithuanian ethnographic regions. The youth team constantly performs in Lithuania and abroad, is proud to represent the country at international festivals, introduces both Lithuanians and foreigners to the country's cultural heritage.
